Cartomizer and Atomizer Ohm Meter
« on: October 15, 2012, 02:13:08 PM »
This is a great thing to get for all who make their own coils and dont have a device that can show the resistance
Cartomizer and Atomizer Ohm Meter

I got it from here: http://www.madvapes.com/cartomizer-and-atomizer-ohm-meter.html for $20

I doesnt come with batteries, it takes 2 AA batteries.

I have been using my meter to get the resistance but it jumps up and down and I find it difficult to get a steady reading with it.
On this I just simply screw in my atomizer, it takes 510 and 901/808.
The picture show only one connection, mine has two.

One of my VH-510 that I use for menthol juices I found out to my very big surprise it is 3.8ohm !  :D



I started vaping 2011-07-29
Mods: Ego-T, Ego-C, Ego-Twist, LavaTube Mini, Gary Dibley Box 3.7V, Stig Juno VV Box
Current favourite setup: Stig Juno with Vision Vivi Nova filled with Decadent Vapours Absinthe

I picked up one of these at VaperCon.

It really keeps testing atties straight forward and simple.... and helps cut some clutter from my  desk

First thing I did with it was test my Vivi Nova atties.....  my 1.8 ohm atty heads test out to 3.0 ohm when there all put together.... which explains why I can only vape them with a VV device.

Used it as a stand afterwards for my first attempts at building a SS wick and coil for a DID atty.... was nice to keep the atty upright and stop it from rolling around.... and of course once the coil is made just flip the switch on and see what you have on the ohms.

Is this the same sort of thing  :-\  all these things confuse the hell out of me  :-[

No Caz...  that goes between your atomiser and battery to measure the real voltage of the the device.

 The Tankometer shows the actual voltage output of your device when under load.
It shows if your device can put out the correct voltage   (the one you set it at)  when you pop an atty on it or if it drops off when under load.
The one Knoton shows is to test the resistance Ω  of an atty,.
As Darth says they are not always what they say they are & it is useful to test home made coils.

I can see Caz's eyes just glazing over and rolling in the back of her head as she read that Cyborg.... In other words your explanation was perfect.  ;)

Problem with those voltage indicators is with all these Chinese PWM mods out now, they don't work.  You actually need a higher-end multi-meter than can measure a PWM output.  Though they work great for a regular ol' battey mod.  Good trouble-shooting tool for that. 

BTW, there are two connections in the picture of the atomizer checker, it's just there's a black cartomizer in one so it's not obvious it's there.  That had me confused for a bit the first time I saw that photo at MadVapes.

Anyone know where to get one of these? I've been looking everywhere and everyone is sold out.

i have been looking for the board thats in that, box cant seem to find that either.

have resorted to a cheep multimeter and an old cartomiser connector.


If you find yourself in a hole, the first thing to do is stop digging. ;)
